Alabama Fans Leave Waiter ‘Roll Tide’ As A Tip, World Is Shocked.

A waiter was cheated out of a tip on Saturday after serving a group of Alabama football fans who appeared to be in a sour mood after their team lost.
Instead of leaving a tip on the $20.25 bill at a Tennessee wing restaurant, the customer scrawled Alabama’s motto ‘Roll Tide’ in the gratuity box and berated the waiter for being ‘proud’ of Auburn.
Forrest Swan, a 22-year-old university student, said he hadn’t realized the customers were Alabama fans and was just making small talk when he commented on the game.
But his comment touched a nerve with the guests, with one of them writing: ‘Don’t talk about being proud of Auburn to an Alabama fan. There’s your tip!’
The 22-year-old, who was working a double shift at the restaurant, told Busted Coverage the group was made up of two men and a woman in their early 20s.
‘They weren’t even wearing any Alabama stuff or anything that would tell me they were Alabama fans,’ he said.
When a friend tweeted a picture of the receipt, some people cast doubt on its authenticity, but Mr Swan and Vaughan Crittenden, who posted it online yesterday, confirmed it was real.
Mr Swan, who supports Virginia Tech, said he was just making small talk with the customers and had said Auburn deserved to win after the last-second touchdown in the Iron Ball.
‘I just walked away. I wasn’t even talking s***, like “Alabama sucks” or “you guys lost”,’ he said.
According to Busted Coverage, the customer contacted the restaurant later to say that he had tried to leave a $4 tip but that it hadn’t gone through.
“Oh booohooo I’m working a double shift and I didn’t get a tip on one table because I made a day one mistake in assuming that these people were Auburn fans, they weren’t even wearing any Alabama gear.. boooohoooo.” Grow up. This is day one shit, you can’t just assume that someone’s on one side of the ball or the other, this is a cutthroat rivalry. They were pouting after the game.. and you for some reason got it in your head that these were Auburn fans?? Do you know what Auburn fans were doing after the game? Elaborate sex parties, hots on shots on shots.. excitement was on high, smiles like you read about, hell, guys in the band probably got laid or at least got a few old fashioned HJs. Alabama on the other hand, their fans cry when the lose, they mean business, if you’re a Bama fan and you don’t “care enough” you’re killed after these games. This dude’s not even an Auburn fan, you’re a VT fan.. keep your mouth shut.. you’re in Alabama.. Lets play a quick word association game.. Alabama –> Roll Tide. Simple as that.
